Description

Summary

This study aims to use clinical and biological characteristics of acute leukemias to screen for patient eligibility for available pediatric leukemia sub-trials. Testing bone marrow and blood from patients with leukemia that has come back after treatment or is difficult to treat may provide information about the patient's leukemia that is important when deciding how to best treat it, and may help doctors find better ways to diagnose and treat leukemia in children, adolescents, and young adults.

Official Title

Pediatric Acute Leukemia (PedAL) Screening Trial - Developing New Therapies for Relapsed Leukemias

Details

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

  1. To utilize clinical and biological characteristics of acute leukemias to screen for patient eligibility for available phase I/II Pediatric Acute Leukemia (PedAL) sub-trials.

II. To maintain a longitudinal and comprehensive registry from relapse in children and young adults with recurrent and refractory leukemia.

OUTLINE:

Patients undergo collection of blood and/or bone marrow samples at baseline, end of treatment cycle(s), and at relapse/refractory disease status (if applicable).

After completion of study, patients are followed up every 3 months for 2 years, and then every 6 months for 3 years.

    Juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia (JMML) is a blood cancer that affects young children and is difficult to diagnose. Currently available therapies cure only half of patients, with some children experiencing an aggressive disease course while some children get better with very little treatment. We have now shown that the presence of secondary mutations at diagnosis predicts a poor outcome.
